If Three's A Crowd, Then Let's Add Another...Welcome Tatiana Trafimovich!

Again, I am thrilled to have another amazing talent join the design team.  Tatiana Trafimovich's cards drew me in by the gorgeous colors she uses.  The vivid & bright colors along with her card designs make for some great eye candy.  The color pallet she chooses gives Tatiana her signature style.  You can view more of Tatiana's work on her blog Tatianacraftandart and Instagram account at Tatianacraftandart.  Here are a couple of new cards she has created for me to share.  Get ready!

Nicola Meek Is Joining in Too!

Yes, I have another design team announcement to make!  It is my pleasure to welcome Nicola Meek to the design team at Purple Onion Designs.  Nicky has been a fan of our stamps for quite some time now.  She was another guest designer this holiday season and created some adorable cards.  Nicky's signature style of soft pastels and elongated cards are always fun because the larger canvas gives her a lot of room to create her adorable scenes.  The first card is a fitting example for today's post.

Holiday Tags

I have some fun tags to share today!  Stamping gift tags is always fun and personal touch to add to your gifts.  They usually take just a few minutes to make.  Happy stamping!

This first set from Agnieszka are actually little shaker ornaments but they would be adorable to double as a gift tag and the perfect keepsake.  I love the fine glitter inside that really looks like glistening snow.
